Free classes are helping educate District 9 residents who have diabetes

diabetesIt is back to basics for anyone who attends the free diabetic educational classes at East Ensley Library and the Greater Birmingham YMCA. District 9 Councilor Marcus Lundy suffers from type two diabetes and encourages learning as much as possible about the disease.  Residents got a lesson in every aspect of diabetic care including how it effects your vision, dental health and just how critical foot care is for diabetic patients since there is a high amputation rate. For more information about everything the Birmingham City Council is doing visit www.birminghamalcitycouncil.org.
